When hiring a house cleaning team, one of the first things you need to talk with them about is the type of services they can provide. You need a person or a team that is going to come to your home and handle virtually anything you need. This ranges widely from one person’s home to another, though. What should you expect?

Normally, tile and grout cleaning is done using bleach. Dip the brush in the chlorine bleach and work on the grout. You can also apply some bleach on the dirty areas first and let them sit for a while. This will allow the bleach to work its magic and loosen the molds and dirt before you scrub away. Caution should be practiced with this method as chlorine bleach can be toxic. Oxygen bleach is a safe alternative.
Flyers work very well. You can produce an attractive flyer on your home computer and print them out. Great for frustrated customers who are not actively seeking cleaning services. They see the flyer and think its a great idea. A simple website works very well. You can link it to the flyers and your business card too. I make my own, or you can have them produced cheaply online. I use my ads on a local program in my area, linked to a website with email access. This also is linked to Google, if you sign up for Google’s local area merchants link its really helpful. I have the number one for housekeeper in my area.

Stock your pantry with any special foods or beverages that will aid in your recovery. Look around your space and ask yourself whether there’s anything you need to add or subtract so that you can feel secure and relaxed as you heal.
